Recommended Biographies

Bacci, The Life of Saint Philip Neri.

Burton, The Eighth American Saint (Biography of Mother Guerin) 

Ciszeck, He Leadeth Me.

Day, The Long Loneliness.

Day, The Eleventh Virgin.

Pearce, Race with the Devil.  Autobiography of a prominent Catholic author that shares his conversion from being a British white supremacist to an American Catholic writer.

Robinson, In No Strange Land: The Embodied Mysticism of Saint Phillip Neri.

Thompson, Francis of Assisi.  Biographies of the famous poverello from Assisi often suffer from the lamentable defect that they tell us more about the biographer than they tell us about the actual flesh and bones saint.  Fr. Augustine Thompson’s biography critically weighs historical sources and comes up with a historically credible picture of who Francis was and what he did.

Turks, Philip Neri: The Fire of Joy.

Sarah, God or Nothing.

Weigel, The End and the Beginning.

Weigel, Witness to Hope.
